View Full Version : Scratch Record Timecode
03-22-2010, 06:38 AM
Hello, as an inexperienced Scratch user I have exported all the Red footage that I have loaded side by side in the Scratch Construct into a single QT movie to edit in FCP. After finished editing I have exported the EDL thinking I would be able to use the Record Timecode of the Construct to conform in Scratch, I have failed. I can't find a way to accomplish this. Anyone knows how to do that ? thank you.

Mr. Aydin, do not understand why you need Scratch to create the QT movie in the first place to be edited in FCP. It is always the other way round. Please explain your workflow again. I often got instant support from Assimilate support whenever I have a question. Lim

I just wanted to work with a self contained proxy file, to be able to work faster in FCP. If I knew better, I would at least use separate proxy files for each shot. The only solution I have come up with, painfully type timecodes for each shot or export every clip as a continues dpx file sequence and reload back to Scratch as a single clip like the proxy itself.

Why don't you use proxy files or transcode to prores using either, redline, red rushes, clipfinder, redcine, redcine x, or even log and tranfer in side fcp. i am sure there are also other ways. You can then conform your offline cut in scratch using edl from fcp, very simple and straight forward. Scratch can output qucktimes for fcp with correct reel and timecode but since scratch is pc based you might as well use the mac you are editing on to create quicktimes.

Hi, I have RedRocket installed with the Scratch machine for faster transcoding, but my workflow is all wrong, your suggestion is much better of course.
